Remembering Sprout

Little Sprout's memorial service will be held today, and we Ballicai are honoring her memory by turnin our bloggie violet and lightin candles. Our love and purrs go to her fambly at this sad time.

If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and You.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried...
Neither will a thousand tears
We know because we've cried...
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too...
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted You.

"Mother Earth and Father Time" from Charlotte's Web

How very special are we

For just a moment to be
Part of life's eternal rhyme

How very special are we

To have on our family tree

Mother Earth and Father Time

He turns the seasons around

And so she changes her gown
But they always look in their prime

They go on dancing their dance

Of everlasting romance
Mother Earth and Father Time

The summer larks return to sing

Oh, what a gift they give

Then autumn days grow short and cold
Oh, what a joy to live

How very special are we
For just a moment to be

Part of life's eternal rhyme

How very special are we

To have on our family tree

Mother Earth and Father Time.
